We stopped here for a few drinks one afternoon. The roof top seating area has an incredible view! It is breezy even on a warm day so bring a jacket or sit in a sunny spot. Our server was friendly and stopped by a few times to check on us. The place was crowded and had a fun atmosphere. We did not eat but saw the plates around us and everyone seemd to enjoy their meals.

I caught our waiter adding a 10 dollar tip on my credit card.I split a check with a friend and the waiter received a $16.00 tip from one card and then added an additional $10.00 from my card. I live local , went back next day and manager did credit my account. I would fire this guy. Not sure if he did or not. Just wanted to advise and let the customers BEWARE OF THIS. . .

We sincerely apologize for any problems you experienced while dining with us. After speaking with your server, it was determined that it was a misunderstanding, and as you stated, the $10 was refunded to your card. We have re-educated the server on proper check-out procedures and this will not happen in the future. We appreciate you making us aware of the situation. Thank you again for your patronage.

The quality of food is good.Needs more variety,in how the food is prepaired.Some of the flavors seem like they come out of the same cooker.A little high on pricing,for the quality and quanity of food you recieve.All in all,it was a good night of dining.The view speaks for itself.

Bad food overprices. $9 to $12 for something that has no taste... no way. I was so hungry and ready for food and got the bread bowl that said "piping hott" and it came out completely cold. I am not picky nor do i write reviews much, but i had to say GO ANYWERE ELSE

Hi Alex,
We are so sorry that your food arrived to your table cold. This is completely unacceptable. Did you make your server aware of this? We would have been happy to have given you another breadboule, served at the temperature it is supposed to be served at. If you would please contact me and let me know when you dined with us, I will be sure to make the proper corrective action so that this does not happen again. We hope you will come back again and give us the opportunity to give you the experience you deserved the first time. Again, we apologize and will make sure this is taken care of immediately. Thank you for making us aware of the situation.
